Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology

Tonight I talk about schools only teaching the technical facts about sex leaves the humanity and fun of sex education being left to pornography.  I discuss that girls are being expected to do things far more extreme than they are comfortable with, and boys don’t learn how to make sex pleasurable for both partners.

I talk about men and the sexual abuse of women.  How the men who rape and abuse are the worst, but how the men who deny it is a problem are making it harder and harder for the women in their lives to come forward when they’ve been assaulted.

Episode 022 – Teaching Consent

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 022 – Teaching Consent

Tonight I talk about the importance of teaching children about consent, respecting that no means no, and the value in self respect.  All without teaching them shame about their bodies or sexuality.  And how difficult that is when they’re too young to understand why it’s important.
